    What other psychological freedom do we have than the freedom to dream?

    "The repose of sleep refreshes only the body. It rarely sets the soul at rest. The repose of the night does not belong to us... Sleep opens within us an inn for phantoms. In the morning we must sweep out the shadows."

    ― Gaston Bachelard, La poétique de la rêverie

    “The French philosopher Gaston Bachelard once wrote an analysis of what he called the poetics of space.28 The inside of a house, he said, acquires a sense of intimacy, secrecy, security, real or imagined, because of the experiences that come to seem appropriate for it. The objective space of a house—its corners, corridors, cellar, rooms—is far less important than what poetically it is endowed with, which is usually a quality with an imaginative or figurative value we can name and feel: thus a house may be haunted, or homelike, or prisonlike, or magical. So space acquires emotional and even rational sense by a kind of poetic process, whereby the vacant or anyonymous reaches of distance are converted into meaning for us here. The same process occurs when we deal with time. Much of what we associate with or even know about such periods as ‘long ago’ or ‘the beginning’ or ‘at the end of time’ is poetic—made up. For a historian of Middle Kingdom Egypt, ‘long ago’ will have a very clear sort of meaning, but even this meaning does not totally dissipate the imaginative, quasi-fictional quality one senses lurking in a time very different and distant from our own. For there is no doubt that imaginative geography and history help the mind intensify its own sense of itself by dramatizing the distance and difference between what is close to it and what is far away.”

    I dream the world, therefore, the world exists as I dream it.

    Over and above the picturesque, the bonds between the world and the human soul are strong. Then there lives within us not a memory of history but a memory of the cosmos.

    Everything that begins in us with the distinctness of a beginning is a madness of life.

    "It maintains him through the storms of the heavens and through those of life. It is the body and soul. It is the human being's first world. Before he is "cast into the world," as claimed by certain hasty metaphysics, man is laid in the cradle of the house. And always, in our daydreams, the house is a large cradle. A concrete metaphysics cannot neglect this fact, this simple fact, all the more, since this fact is a value, an important value, to which we return in our daydreaming. Being is already a value.Life begins well, it begins enclosed, protected, all warm in the bosom of the house."
